no no, justdressageit, I understand where you're coming from. I read the ad and he does have some w/t/c so yes, it would be better if they did include those images. But then again, if you are really serious about the horse, you can always just email or call and request more pictures of him undersaddle - if they dont show you then chances are, they will have a tougher time selling him for his worth.
And yes, I agree when it comes to always negotiating and doing more reasearch. Yeah he is priced a bit high, I'm sure you could get him for cheaper, but then again, this also isn't europe where you have nice hunters and jumpers everywhere so sometimes theyre bound to be a bit over the top in price.
